Our goal is to make as many as possible of the resources created for this site available for German students and teachers throughout the world. For that purpose, we have created this resource page, which contains links to all of the resources on this site that are of general interest, such as the "Interactive Grammar Tutor," the "German on the Web" link collection, essay writing and grading information (including instructions for typing "Umlaute"), a summary of Reading Strategies, Self-Study Advice and advice on Learning Strategies, etc. As soon as it becomes usable, a link will appear on the Resources page to an extensive image database which we are currently compiling.
